Skip to comments.Obama in push for 'world without nuclear weapons'
Posted on 03/25/2012 9:28:16 PM PDT by EnglishCon
US President Barack Obama says he is pushing for "a world without nuclear weapons", making direct appeals to North Korea and Iran.
He also pledged to work with Russia and China, speaking ahead of a summit in Seoul aimed at reducing the risk of nuclear terrorism.
He emphasised the US's unique position to seek change but said "serious sustained global effort" was needed.
The meeting is being attended by representatives from some 50 countries.

Note "He also spoke, he said, as a father who did not want to see his daughters growing up in a world with nuclear threats, a comment which drew applause from his student audience."
Using his kids as a tool yet again.
Didn’t President Carter do this with Amy?
Except for the Caliphate.
Something’s working. It must be stopped. You could’nt write our world.
They are probably more safe in arsenals around the world than being parted out and getting weapons grade material smuggled around.
Nuclear weapons on planet Earth are a fact of life...now and for as long as there are ‘intelligent’ life forms here. They will NEVER go away.
That being said, Obozo is either dangerously naive and completely ignorant, or he inadvertently vocalized his true belief that the US should be disarmed. Either or.
He must be into the blow again. What a moron.
He doesn’t want his daughters punished with a baby either.
The guy has the worst bs. Telepromter must have been on the fritz.
North Koerans ready to bank that deal. Deliver the benjamins Omullah. See? No nukes. Not till next month anyway.
What a suprise... The Marxist usurper wants to give up our nuclear weapons to make North Korea and Iran happy. That will surely make the world a safer place.
What a total fool. He actually believes Iran and N Korea can be trusted.
Using your kids as part of election strategy is something I find particularly offensive, since there is a strong tradition against even mentioning the children of politicians here until they reach adulthood. Or do something incredibly boneheaded, like getting caught drinking under age.
Obama mulls unilateral disarmament of strategic nukes
Obamas unilateral disarmament: White House drive for nuclear zero imperils the world
Translation: Obama emphasised HIS unique position to seek change...but said serious sustained global effort was needed....to position Him as the world leader.
Obama's going for the gold now folks!...and with it he may very well usher in world war 3.
Better said..Does he think they would even begin to trust him? They shouldn't or they are the fools.
Well, he is really an idiot and a dreamer. India and Pakistan will have to have seats at the table along with China and North Korea.
I hope and pray that it is so.
Mentioned before that a couple of my kids are seriously thinking of emigrating to the US. I’d sort of like to have something for them to run to, rather than running from the mess this country is becoming.
The only nukes Obozo intends to rid the world of are the ones we have. He is the worst enemy the US has ever had.
Well we have to look at this from Obamas desire to have office on the world stage...he's also campaigning for that...and there are some leaders who have already been lining him up for something, though it escapes me at the moment. Read it awhile back.
the world without nukes? no. he only cares about the US being without nukes.
0failure and his ideologues are strapping the American people face down to the edge of the gurney...
that cold clammy feeling you have is the KY being applied.
you know what comes next... right?
Frankly, I see nothing wrong with that particular statement. I don’t want to see kids growing up in a world with nuclear threats either.
The problem of course is that states like North Korea and Iran absolutely can’t be trusted. In fact, none but the western democracies and Israel, and maybe Japan and South Korea can be trusted, and those not terribly far.
But if an absolute no-cheat system can be set up to get rid of nuclear weapons, that would be a good thing. Extremely, extremely difficult. But I’m not prepared to say that it’s necessarily impossible. And if it could reasonably be done, it would be a very good thing.
And yes, a danger of course is what the poster in post 17 said. Unilateral disarmament isn’t anything we need.
If it could be done perfectly, I would agree wholeheartedly. I, like you (I assume) grew up during the pants-wetting stage of the Cold War, and I remember the fear.
But, as you say, several sitting at the nuclear table cannot be trusted. And think back - has any system anywhere not been subverted or evaded in under a week?

There is NOBODY that stupid on the entire planet. Therefore, one can only reach the conclusion that he is seeking unilateral disarmament of the US and our total defeat by nuclear annihilation.
Nuclear weapons have saved more lives than they have ever killed and that will continue to be true... until it isn’t.
Agree totally. Once the genie was out of the bottle, MAD was the only logical way to prevent them actually being used.
I would, perhaps, be inclined to add India to that short list, as they demonstrated remarkable forebearance in the face of a direct act of war against their nation, in the attack on their national legislature some years back. A commendable act on their part, and indicates to me that they may be trusted with nuclear weapons, at least at present...
It works until a rogue nation like Iran or NK gets their hands on nuclear weapons. Then the whole MAD philosophy breaks down. Crazy people with nukes changes everything.
And their fiends the Chicoms and the Russkies..
A rogue nation already has nuclear weapons: Pakistan.
Misinformation. He seeks a world where the United States has no nuclear arms. The rest of the world isn’t inherently evil as the US like. His mama and other red diaper doper babies told him so.
Obama claimed he grew up in school doing duck and cover exercises. Except he wasn’t in the United States attending school when that was still the drill.
In the 1970s on the Gulf, we’d line up in an interior hallway and shield are heads in tornado drills but no ducking under a desk or anything.
The man is dishonest and has fabricated his history. He also claimed his parents came together because of what happened at the Selma march. Years after Barry was already born.
That IS odd. we stopped duck and cover about 1968, IIRC. You guys stopped about the same time.
The guy just mires himself deeper and deeper.
So, Zero, how'd that NPT thingy really work out?
I'll bet he thinks it's just peachy.
IN Obamas century 21, Iran, North Korea, Burma et.al. could be nuclear superpowers.
Ronald Reagan wanted this too. The difference is that Reagan sought peace through strength whereas Obama wants us to unilaterally disarm.
what do you expect from a man that lets his 13 yr old go off to Mexico by herself for spring break. His kids are nothing more than political tools for him. Seriously though what kind of parents let a 13 yr old go off on by herself for a vacation, regardless of the location.
Ha,.....that's what all the Birth Cert stuff is about.......President of the UN ...here we come
What he really means is a world where Israel cant use nuclear weapons.
Nukes for the Greater Caliphate jhadies. Disarmament for the infidels. What we need is duck and cover exercises to protect from Obama.
WTF foreign policy on display.
As horrible as a nuclear war may be, the fact is that since they were created, there has not been a war between major powers (going on 70 years). I would argue that Korea and Vietnam were proxy wars and Desert Storm, Iraqui Freedom, Afganistan were 1 sided wars.
Prior to that we had WWII, WWI, War of 1870, Crimean War, Napoleonic Wars, 7 Years War...
Anyway, you can make the arguement that nuclear weapons (especially in American hands) have kept the peace.
Just forget the Truman Administration’s screwy idea of handing all of them over to the UN after WWII.
I don’t remember doing Duck and Cover after 1960.
> You couldnt write our world.
Actually, all you see transpiring has been predicted in the Bible.
* The re-emergence of Israel.
* The hatred of Israel by the whole world.
* The existential threat to Israel.
* Calling good evil and evil good.
* The destruction of the family.
* The rise of one-world government
There is more.
Read your Bible.
Give your heart to Jesus.
Watch and pray.
Yeah, a world without Nukes, just like we have cities without guns. When nukes are outlawed, only rogue nations will have them. Then, we’re all in trouble.
Our principal was ex RAF. Looked it up and they ceased being mandatory here in ‘63 - we are a tad closer to the “front lines” of the times than you guys, but he kept doing the drills until ‘68, when he retired.
